Hillary Clinton Email Probe Update: New Emails Show Clinton Deliberately Used Unsecured Home Server Despite Security Risk

Although it is still unclear if Clinton and Mills connected over a line that was not secure, critics believe the present episode aptly demonstrates that the former Secretary of State resorted to “unsecure forms of communication out of convenience, potentially jeopardizing sensitive information.”

Fox News reports that the email exchange between Hillary Clinton and Cheryl Mills is reminiscent of another email exchange between her and then-State Department deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, where she directed Sullivan “to strip the classification markings of sensitive talking points and send through non-secure fax.”

“They say they’ve had issues sending secure fax. They’re working on it,” Sullivan wrote to Clinton in 2011.

“If they can’t, turn into nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure,” Clinton wrote back.

Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, said in a press statement after the release of Thursday’s emails that Clinton could have repeatedly used unsecured lines to connect with her aides during her tenure as the Secretary of State.

“This drip, drip of new Clinton emails show Hillary Clinton could not care less about the security of her communications. How many other smoking gun emails are Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators in the Obama administration hiding from the American people?”

According to an earlier report in The Inquisitr, Cheryl Mills, whom Clinton corresponded with in the email exchange released Thursday, walked out of an FBI interview briefly when an official broached a topic considered off-limits. It is not yet known if the questions involved the present email exchange, but reports suggested that Mills was not willing to address inquiries related to the “procedure used to produce emails to the State Department so they could possibly be released publicly.”

The emails released Thursday are not part of the 30,000 messages released by the State Department in recent months, raising further questions on whether Hillary Clinton deliberately withheld information from investigators.
